1.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous, 14 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book seems t advocate the most dangerous strategy for trading. Everything looks rosey on paper but you are a braver man than me if you risk money on this philosophy. The author acknowledges the drawbacks himself, continually referring to catching falling knives and death by a thousand cuts. True you can play with this strategy using small amounts of money where you may be able to tolerate a £5-£10 loss, but for serious trading I feel this is flawed and no amount of "data" is going to convince me otherwise. The most worrying thing about the book is the end directing you to the authors web site and blog and not surprisingly his other books. I suspect this author makes very little trading and all his income is as an author and advertising from his site.

Do what you are does not do what I expected it to do. There are no secrets in personality type. Save your money and google search the topic. There is just as much freely available information out there.

My first DSLR so I can't compare to others, but I love this camera. Very accessible for beginners. A million times better than any point and shoot camera.

1.0 out of 5 stars "Secrets best kept secret", 26 July 2006
The book seems to be a collection of random facts, followed by an extensive advertising campaign for the author's other products. The section on the dead lift is excellent, but this information is freely available over the internet. I have a broad background in martial arts myself and the authors' section on tension training seems to contradict all the principles of martial arts. Not great, look elsewhere!
